david, I got some photos off the internet. i took a little shim out of the canopy, that might work. we'll see. i'll look on the site for helpful threads. thank you brian.

the ball peen hammer might be the solution! lol!

Another possible solution is to inlet the fuselage to acomodate the warped canopy. Gentyly slice the fuselage with an exacto and form a depression that will permit the canopy to lie flush. If that does not work, aquire a new canopy. If that does not work. Purchase a heavy ball, peen hammer. Strike forcefully :)

thanks for the help john!

I think it be warped a tad. I would say low heat from hair dryer and try to torque it to fit but it has paint and the paint will probably ripple. Order a new one and start again.

it's just sitting on top john, I haven't glued it yet. i'm at a dilemma on how to fasten it down.

Brian,I Remove this one. Aquire a new one. Install it again or force form this "can of peas" by striking it forcefully with a heavy ball peen hammer :)

Meant every word. Sorry about the mix up the other day. Your model is really coming along very nicely. You've even added cowl flaps! Very nice!

Ouch! My bad, Brian. Still looks very good and warbird models are not easy to do.
